Point of Sales Tracking

Your success relies on having the most up-to-date retail sales data to understand which technical consumer goods products are performing well in the market – and which are not. 

Our Point of Sales (POS) Tracking helps you measure your market share and brand performance and benchmark it against your competition. We have built the world’s largest retail panel, and track products and deliver insights based on actual sales data from both retailer and reseller.

Flexible delivery frequency to fit your business goals

You can choose to have our POS insights delivered weekly, monthly or less frequently, depending on your business goals. 

Looking at the tracking from a strategic perspective, with our quarterly or monthly POS insights you can size markets, identify patterns, monitor channel dynamics and develop a detailed understanding of global and local market trends from the “big picture” macro level down to an individual product level. This allows you to optimize your product assortment, distribution and pricing strategy.

The weekly delivery is ideal for tactical decision making. Week-by-week you receive sell-out insights for your own and competing products across all relevant channels, online and offline on single item level. This helps you understand promotional effectiveness, improve retail negotiations, steer your activities, monitor critical launches, and exploit seasonal peaks such as Black Friday.

Below we list the product categories that we track on our panel. The number of products covered across the globe is extensive, yet not all are tracked in every country and at every frequency. For further information on availability in your country of interest, please contact us.

  • Telecom hardware
  • Information technology (IT hardware, software, accessories, components and storage)
  • Consumer electronics and photo
  • Major and small domestic appliances
  • Automotive aftermarket
  • Optics
